I will preface everything I post further on with a statement that FFG is my favorite board game company, with the very best games BUT...
Did anyone else feel a little ripped of by RuneWars? I think the game should have been made with 6 factions from the start. Dwarves and Orcs should have been in that box in addition to the other 4. This would have given us 2 Neutral factions, and a much larger set of options to keep play from become stale. I've been with the Runewars universe since it was Battlemist. I played and collected Diskwars, and have bought most of the games in that world that have come from then to now. And for the first time, I feel milked.
I understand that expansions help drive profits and keep the company afloat to create more and better games. I accept that and don't complain when any game gets more expansions or revamps or new edition or special limited edition figures. I buy most of these things at my local retailer in Boston (the Compleat Strategist if anyone cares), and have already preordered the TI3 expansion from them.
But seriously. 4 Factions? It could have killed you to do 6 and give us the classic factions from Battlemist? Hell, you have expansion races past those 2 from DiskWars, in the form of Demons and Dragonmen, just to name 2 (there are others).
Seriously, it was like getting a third less factions in TI. No one wants that. We want more choices and more variety. Why are we screwed out of that? And I would have even forgiven that, if the expansion came out quickly, but no, we're waiting too damned long for it.
If anyone in charge of anything is reading these forums, lodge this complaint.
